by the united nations body, particularly the united nations relief agency for palestinian belief. it works to provide essential services to the palestinian refugees who for more than 60 years have been waiting for redress of their plight and the realization of the right to return to their homes and properties. i am fully aware that the agenda of the united nations general assembly is replete with matters and issues of pressing concern to the entire human race and our planet, particularly those related to our complex wars, people living under foreign occupation, the realization of the right to self- determination, clos -- climate change, global warming, natural disaster, and global and economic financial crises. all of this takes place at a time when we're witnessing the call for the revitalization of the united nations and particularly for the reform of the security council in order for it to become more representative and surely embody the current international situation. that is especially in light of the emergence of new powers that must be represented in the security council to enhance
is. that is my opinion. i think the united nations is helping to undermine our middle- class and our power in the world. host: why don't you start with a claimed that the u.n. undermines the united states? guest: it is quite wrong. the united nations is founded on the concept of sovereignty. in many ways, it is too conservative on sovereignty. in some extreme circumstances, the security council could vote to intervene against the country's sovereigntyo protect human rights. that is the only circumstance that the u.n. to intervene. other than that, sovereignty is the key principle of the united nations. the u.n. has no power to intervene in the united states whatsoever. this is a myth of the u.n. on the economics, the u.n. is an organizaon that tackles international security questions. it has an economic arm but it is pretty powerless. the concerns about globalization are real. they do not have much to do with the united nations. the have to do with the world bank and the world trade organization, the institutions in which the global economy is being regulated. there is very, very lit
ahmadinejad as inexcusable. earlier, speaking at the united nations, the iranian leader speculated the american government may have been involved in september 11, 2001. mr. obama also emphasized that he thinks that president and manager of's views are out of sync with the iranian people. >> it was offensive. it was hateful. and particularly for him to make this statement here in manhattan, just a little north of ground zero, where families lost their loved ones, people of all faiths, all ethnicities, who see this as the seminal tragedy of this generation, for him to make a statement like that was inexcusable. it stands in contrast with the response of the iranian people when it 9/11 happen. there were candlelight vigils, and i think a natural sense of shared humanity and sympathy, and it just shows, once again, the difference between how the iranian leadership and its regime operates, and, i think, how the vast majority of iranian people, who are respectable and thoughtful, think about these issues. >> the first video was march of 2009. you spoke and he talked about how you were co

weaker than he was a year ago. when he went to the united nations last year, there were cheers. there were applause. delegates were taking pictures of him. his main message is we're going to re-engage with the united nations. it was an end to the so-called go it alone years of the bush administration. so he was really given a very warm welcome. and now he has been criticized over the last year as you know for having been naive perhaps in his faith in engagement. and this has been used against him by his republican critics. so he comes back to the united nations this year with a much more down-to-earth message. i need help on this issue. i need help on this issue. i need help on this issue. gwen: and when ahmadinejad shows up and says -- yeah. he said from ground zero, the terrorists didn't really exist or whatever it was he said. people who are critics of the president who -- who advocated for engagement with iran get a little fodder, don't they? >> they sure do. the big suspense every year around the u.n. general assembly is what is ahmadinejad going to say this year in order
